DOHA: Drake & Scull Qatar (DSI Qatar), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Drake & Scull International PJSC (DSI), has won a mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contract for QR400m for the upcoming Mall of Qatar in Al Rayyan.

This is the latest in a series of multi-million commercial and residential deals signed by the company this year.

UrbanCon Trading and Development are the main contractors on this commercial development.

DSI Qatar will execute the installation of electromechanical works on the three-storey mall which will feature a hypermarket, a multiplex, five department stores and at least 20 restaurants. 

In addition to the car parking accommodating 7,000 cars, the mall will also have its own metro station. DSI Qatar is scheduled to start work on site in the first quarter of 2014 and the project is slated for completion in June 2015. 

Karem Akawi, Area General Manager of Drake & Scull Qatar said: “The Mall of Qatar is a very prestigious project award for DSI and will build upon the rich experience we have in Mega Retail projects. 

“DSI Qatar’s MEP division is a market leader and is currently executing projects across district cooling, hospitality and residential sectors.”

Earlier this year, Drake & Scull Qatar was awarded a QR304m contract for a mixed-use real estate development project in Doha and a second residential project worth QR180m.

 DSI Qatar has also been associated with several prestigious projects since the early 2006 such as the Four Seasons Hotel, the Qtel Tower and the Doha Land project and has a healthy backlog and a history of consistent profitability. The Peninsula
